Here's what Lonely Planet says on this place:
The centre of the old town, this district of three main streets (Ichi-no-Machi, Ni-no-Machi and San-no-Machi) is lined with traditional shops, restaurants and museums. Sake breweries are easily recognised by the spheres of cedar fronds: some open to the public in January and early February (the schedule is available at tourist offices); most of the year they just sell their wares. For beautiful nighttime shots, bring a tripod and set your camera's exposure to long.
|Sake breweries everywhere|
|I exerted all my self-control in order not to go crazy again over "seasonal specials" here.|
|A miso shop. |
The miso is tasty but I didn't buy any since I don't quite know how / what to cook with it!
|It's quite pricey but the beef is good.|
|There is even certification to prove it!|
|The chef is making my sushi!|
|I got the Set "C" and everything is edible|
I can still taste the beef in my mouth!
|Just as I thought I am too full I got distracted again...|
Hobo Miso Buns!!!

I actually made this before. Click here.
Now I know I need to make the wrappings thicker and the red bean paste more moist!
